Red Rookie 14 Balance Bike with the pedal kit fitted

Rookie 14

Designed exclusively by us to give your child a seamless transition from balancing to pedalling

Stepping up to a pedal bike introduces many new skills at once; Braking, Pedalling, Steering, Speed control, and fine-tuning balance, all at the same time. Children also need time to adjust to bigger and heavier bikes.

Breaking this down into small learning steps makes the whole process far more manageable, and much more fun.


The Rookie 14 turns kids into confident riders!


Kidvelo Rookie 14 – Balance Mode or Pedal Bike – Can be used either way

Our clever design allows you to fit the included pedal kit and convert it into a lightweight pedal bike.

How this process helps your child learn to ride

Stepping up to a pedal bike introduces many new skills at once; Braking, Pedaling, Steering, Speed control, and fine-tuning balance, all at the same time. Children also need to adjust to a bigger and heavier bike. Breaking this down into small learning steps makes the whole process far more manageable, much more fun, and the result is a child who can now confidently ride.

The Rookie 14 is an innovative convertible pedal bike

The Kidvelo Rookie 14 inch works perfectly without the pedals, and then converts to an ergonomic, lightweight pedal bike. We took extra care to ensure the bike performs brilliantly with the pedals on or off!

The ideal solution for teaching your child to ride a bike!

The Rookie 14 is incredibly lightweight and durable, with a 6061 aluminium frame and top-quality alloy components weighing just 6.2 kg when the pedals are attached.

Cranks are one of the most critical parts of a pedal bike. The cranks allow you to convert the power produced by your legs into rotational motion that drives the bicycle forward. Some brands that have tried this 2-in-1 approach have crank arms too short.

The result: a bike that, regardless of how fast you pedal, you don’t move quick enough in proportion to the effort put in. If the cranks are too long, they impact the ground when cornering, as the pedal is too close to the ground. We have carefully researched the leg proportions for the age groups, tested, retested, and believe we have found the optimum length crank of 89mm, which via extensive testing, corners beautifully.


Rookie 14 weighs just 4.7 Kg. and is comparable with top-quality bikes of a similar size. Ideal for kids just starting their cycling journey, or for experienced riders, just coming off a smaller 12″ bike so that they can familiarise themselves with brakes, bigger wheels and a larger frame. The minimum seat height is 40cm, and the maximum is 55cm. When they are riding and manoeuvring the bike confidently, they could be ready for the Pedal Kit to be fitted. A child is ready to make this move when they can keep their feet up for prolonged periods on the footrest and steer and balance without thinking


The included pedal kit transforms the bike into an ergonomic pedal bike. Fitting the pedal kit is quickly done using Allen keys provided. The Rookie 14″ weighs only 6.2 kg in pedal bike mode. Consequently, the bike will give you the performance of far more expensive bikes, with the added benefit of making the transition to pedals child’s play at a more affordable price. Plus, since it retains the same geometry and handling between modes of operation, the child’s learning lag is virtually non-existent. The Rookie range of convertible pedal bikes is sure to please even the most discerning of parents.
